How do we verifiy if a string exist in this enumeration?

By example :

    Here is the code:

    	IWDAttributeInfo attribInf = wdContext.getNodeInfo().getAttribute("Color");
    	ISimpleType simpleType = attribInf.getSimpleType();
    	Set set = simpleType.getEnumeration();
    	String color = "RED";
    	if(set != null)
                        wdComponentAPI.getMessageManager().reportSuccess("Color "+color+" is true");
